The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has reportedly sought legal opinion from Solicitor General Tushar Mehta on Supreme Court’s (SC)recent order on adjusted gross revenue (AGR) payment timelines.

To this end, DoT has sought opinion on whether Vodafone Idea and Bharti Airtel need to pay 10 per cent of their dues, in addition to what they have already paid, by the end of March 2021.

AGR dues include licence fees, spectrum usage charges (SUC), interest and penalties.
